The Poncho Liner Fleece is primarily designed to be a insulative under layer for the Poncho, but is commonly used in the hammock to provide a layer between the nylon and the skin, it can also be worn separately or be used as a blanket. We use Fleece by Polartec exclusively, a premium grade of domestic fabric. Never confuse this with cheap imitations. The fleece tends to shed water and it easy to dry if it becomes wet.
About our Fleece-We sell only authentic Polartec®. It is the highest quality product of its kind available anywhere in the world, and it is made in the U.S.A.
Our Poncho Fleece Liner has sturdy reinforced edge tabs into which our double sided snaps are attached. This special snap arrangement found nowhere else allows the liner to both snap into the existing snaps on the PSS series Ponchos and also snap together to form a sealed edge poncho. We use a slit neck hole rather than a round one typically found in this type of garment, the idea is that we are able to capture and seal in more body heat than other methods. This means more of your core body heat stays there and does not “chimney” out the neck hole.
Using the Poncho Liner also turns the PSS series Poncho into an emergency cold weather shin length coat that is very effective. It is incredibly warm when used as a seated bivy in the eskimo style. It can also be fashioned into a sort of mummy bag, or it can be worn by itself. The Poncho Liner Fleece is an extremely versatile piece of clothing shelter gear. The Liner also adds comfort between the skin and the nylon of the Poncho shell.
